"Being a dad is more important to me than anything else."
The Westbrook family will grow from three to five this Fall. Last May, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook and his wife Nina welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Noah. Today, Russell and Nina revealed that they are expecting twin girls this Fall.
As part of a video series filmed at "The Little Ark" in Oklahoma City, the couple discussed parenthood and Russ explained how being a father comes first and foremost.
"Being a dad is more important to me than anything else. Family is always the most important thing for me, regardless of what I do. It's important that Noah knows I'm his dad first and not a basketball player or anything else that I do. That's the most important part to me - to make sure that being a father, husband and a family man is more important than anything else."
Of the future additions to the Westbrook family, Nina says, "If Noah gets out of hand, they'll be able to both jump on him at the same time." Russell adds, "It's obviously something that is not normal, but it's very, very exciting for us and something that I look forward to. You know having two girls is exciting in itself, but just having been able to be blessed and have more children, I think is a complete blessing."
